The Chris Nolan Batman series will probably go down as the greatest movie trilogy of all time. By now, we know how the story starts and takes so many twists and turns. The biggest story arc that continued from The Dark Knight into The Dark Knight Rises dealt with Batman taking the rap for what Harvey Dent did as Two-Face. Batman didn’t want to break the spirit of Gotham. Gotham believed in Harvey Dent. Batman’s guilt was a complete lie told in order to maintain stability in the city. If you do not have hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes. Harvey Dent was that extension of hope.
At the start of the 3rd film, Gotham was happy. Crime was at an all-time low. It was all because Gothem believed in Harvy Dent for taking out the Joker and arresting crime lords. People had rallied around one man’s vision for what Gotham could look like. For the first time in many years, the city felt safe and the people were optimistic and at peace. Of course it could not last. It was an illusion, predicated on a lie. Evil hung out waiting..waiting… for the perfect time to take out the city’s soul and infrastructure. Game over. Gotham was in ashes because the evil was still there, just waiting to strike at the heart.
What does this have to do with the Bills and Mario Williams?
